When we think of water pollution we often think of the pollution caused by business and industry, but that is not the whole story. Runoff from residential neighborhoods, cities, and farms contribute to water pollution. Storm drains and roadside ditches lead to our lakes and streams. So, any oil, pet waste, leaves, fertilizers or dirty water from washing your car or other outside activities that enters a storm drain gets into our lakes and streams.  As a resident of Genesee County, you have a big impact on stream and river quality within our watersheds.
